MUBAI: Maniesh Paul will be soon be sharing screen space with Neetu Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, debutant Prajakta Koli, and Anil Kapoor in Jugjugg Jeeyo. The film, directed by Raj Mehta, is about relations and complications in it. Recently, Maniesh spoke about his kiss scene in his first film as a lead actor, Mickey Virus. He recalled how, on the day he was supposed to do the shot, he refused to do it. Speaking on his show, The Maniesh Paul Podcast, with Prajakta Koli, he said that he had asked the director Saurabh Varma to inform him ahead of the scene's filing, but he wasn't told. Maniesh later revealed why he was adamant about not doing the scene on that particular day.
Mickey Virus (2013) is a comedy thriller film, written and directed by Saurabh. The film features Manish, Elli AvrRam, Manish Choudhary, Puja Gupta, and Varun Badola among others. The film is produced by DAR Motion Pictures in association with Trilogic Digital Media Limited and Awesome Films Pvt. Ltd.
In his show, Maniesh said, "I had told director ki pehle batadena, usne nhi bataya (I had told the director to let me know beforehand, but he didn't tell me). The next morning, I reach the set and he said 'Maniesh we will do it today'. I said ‘I won't do it today'. He asked 'why' and I replied, 'I can't do it today, I can't do the intimate kissing scene today'. He asked me, 'What is your problem with doing it today?' I said, 'Today is my wedding anniversary. Guys, on my wedding anniversary I cannot be kissing another woman, please understand'. So I went to Elli and told her, 'We will shoot it tomorrow okay? For sure, we will do it tomorrow.'"
Maniesh also recalled not telling his wife 'much' about the scene though he had informed her that he will be doing an intimate scene.
JugJugg Jeeyo is produced by Dharma Productions and Viacom18 studios. So far, the makers have released three songs from the film, that is, The Punjaabban Song, Rangi Sari, and Duppata.
